Travel Guide

A legal journey from Alabama to New York

The novel’s locations are Alabama and New York but the main setting is inside the court room. A court room where a judge rules the roost in the most unexpected of ways. The author writes about the inspiration behind this novel in his author note. He said that that District Attorneys have the sole discretion in the USA when it comes to the death penalty. This happens in allstates where the death penalty is still in use. The author researched how sometimes, over zealous DAs try to get the death penalty at all costs. There is an organisation called The Fair Punishment Project who found that just five prosecutors where  responsible for securing 440 death sentences between them. Scary stuff.

The White Camelia were a real group.
